In early January, the main event on the affiliate-market: Affiliate Summit West 2018 was held in Las Vegas. The advanced experience from 2016 left no doubts for us to partake the next time, so the Travelpayouts team visited the United States again. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our stand, we are always glad to meet our partners. For those who missed the event, we are publishing a small report.
Affiliate Summit West 2018 — key facts
Participants came to the Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas from 70+ countries. There were 3 pavilions with stands of 300+ companies, one of which was Travelpayouts. In 2018, were carried out more than 70 profile discussions and participants had a chance to meet more than 100 recognized industry experts. All this makes the summit undeniably one of the main events in the industry.
Affiliate Summit West is an event that literally determines the market trends for the coming year. The Summit for us, is an opportunity to get acquainted with our actual partners, to establish communication with the new ones, and to become an integral part of the travel industry not only in Russia and the CIS, but also worldwide.
How it was
Roots of Travelpayouts are in Russia, so we decided to beat all the funny stereotypes about our country — bears, weapons and other attributes. This drew the attention and smiles from the foreign audience.
Although the weather in sunny Vegas this time of year was not so warm and sunny, we lowered the temperature even further by handing out ice creams.
By tradition, we were generous with Polaroid-pictures with our contacts on the back for all those who took interest in our stand.
Prior to the Summit we overcame the new level of payments to partners — $ 12 million from the 2011 year. More data about the achievements of our partners and highest payments can be seen on our main page or in the article about our recently celebrated company’s birthday.
For the future, we have big plans — expansion into more products and services for the foreign market, work on a mobile market, for which we’ve already presented a new affiliate tool — the Mobile App in White Label. And, of course, we are always working on the improvements of existing products and your personal experience. Join us today!
